Ambient Review

Stephen Prince – ‘The Corn Mother: Night Wraths’

A Year In The Country – Release: 16th March 2020

Eerie electronica, characterised by distant synthetic messages and spindly environmental noise. The latest offering from A Year In The Country, continues with earthy drones and odd folklore in both it’s sound design and accompanying Novella.

Ambient Experimental Review

Sea Urchin & Aki Goto’s Shirotento Orchestra – Natal Uranus

RVNG Intl – Release: 29/2/20

Batshit bonkers from the RVNG (un)stable. Pythonesque moments collide with off-piste rhythms and melodies verging on the clinically insane, in this collaboration between Sea Urchin and Aki Goto’s Shirotento Orchestra.
